Of course and with no doubt, we all have tried to knot a tie and ended up with a terrific tangled tie. Here we are going to show you the four methods of knotting a tie in easy steps. All what you need is to follow the instructions, some patience, a mirror and a sharp-looking tie, then you will become an expert in knotting an amazing tie. There are several ways of tying the ties from which we have brought the four basic methods that are in widespread use. These four methods are called the four-in-hand knot, the half-Windsor knot, the Traditional Windsor knot and the Pratt knot.
The-four-in-hand knot: it is the easiest one among the four methods to learn and it is suitable for most occasions. First, put the wide end of the tie on the side of your dominant hand as if you are right-handed, so the wide end should be on your right and if you are left-handed, so the wide end should be on your left hand. Then move the wide end over the narrow end in the way to cross each other on the seam and after this step pull the wide end behind the narrow one. Bring the wide end around and bring it under the narrow end again, then pull the wide end under the loop around your neck and pull the wide end down through the knot at the front of the tie. At the end, tighten the tie by sliding it up the narrow end.
The half windsor knot: it is a symmetric as it is more business and suitable for most occasions. First, put the tie around your neck in the way to be the length of the wide side is about three times the length of the narrow side and begin to cross the wide side of the tie over the narrow side. Start to bring the wide side around and under the narrow side then take this wide side over the loop around the neck. Bring the wide side over the narrow one, from out front, from right to left then slide the wide side up through the loop around the neck. Bring the wide side through the knot and finally tighten the tie into the triangle shape.
Traditional Windsor knot: it gives a sense of nobility as it suits the political and business occasions. First, put the tie around your neck and make the wider end on your right lower than the other thin end on the left about 30 cm and cross the wide end over the narrow end. Bring the tie up through the loop and bring it back down then pull the wide end under the narrow end and to the right side. Pull the wide end through the loop, but in this time on the right side then cross the wide end through the thin end one more time from the right to the left. Bring the wide end underneath the loop and fold it into the knot and finally use your two hands to tighten up the tie in a triangle shape.
Pratt knot: it looks neat as it is in average size which is not too wide or too narrow. Set the wide end of the tie on the right side and the narrow end of the tie on the left side then cross the wide end underneath the narrow end and bring the wide one over the loop around your neck. Pull the wide end under again to complete the loop and tighten, bring the wide end over the narrow end from left to right then pull the wide end up through the loop and bring the wide side down through the knot. Finally, tighten it up into a triangle shape.
